DROUGHT WORSENS IN THE SOUTH

Newsroom/El Comercio de Colorado

According to the most recent report from the US Drought Monitor, 82 per cent of Colorado territory is under some state of draught. Thirty-four counties are listed on the report showing severe, extreme or exceptional droughts. This situation is particularly serious. A year ago, no county of the state was officially under draught, but about 12 per cent of the state was showing mild signs of draught. The lack of snowpack during the most recent winter is the cause of the current draught.

Karl Wetlaufer, hydrologist from the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA), assures that the lack of snow will continue to have consequences during the rest of the year. This expert believes there are reasons to worry about the reduction of hydric resources in the south and center of Colorado. Wetlaufer talks about a possible restriction in water supply for human and commercial consumption. Also, the scarcity of water and the dry soil creates the conditions for an active wildfire season.

Affected areas

US Drought Monitor measures draught in five categories. The exceptional drought, which is the worst, has been present in Southern Colorado. The most affected areas are Montezuma and part of the La Plata, Dolores, Archuleta, San Miguel, San Juan and Montrose counties. Sections of Las Ánimas, Huérfano, Custer, Saguache, Alamosa and Costilla counties moved from the second to last category, extreme drought, to the worst possible category, exceptional drought, in the middle of May.

Meanwhile, the abnormally drought, first level of draught expanded over the northern areas of the state. However, there are some positive developments. The level of severe draught faded from most of Moffat and Rio Blanco counties, in the western area of the state. In these two counties the draught fell to a moderate level. Conditions remain stable in the rest of the state. The draught report indicates that the recent rains reduced the extension of the abnormally and moderate drought in the northern part of the state.
